I reported that problem a while back and I received the following reply on the 24th.

"This message is being sent to inform you that your error reported has been marked as completed at the Internet Archive Report Center. Thank you!

Your request was: The audio on the mpeg4 files is messed up. They sound like the Chipmunks. This problem appears in all the Computer Chronicles and Net Café mpeg4 files I downloaded. I played the files in both Quicktime and the VideoLan player so it appears to be a problem with the files.

You may want to investigate this problem further!


The completion notes are: Thanks for pointing this out - We have isolated the problem and will re-encode the corrupted files."

only points out the importance of CHECKING ALL FILES BEFORE UPLOADING THEM... measure twice, cut once.

I know some of these files were 'encoded by uncaring machines' but there is a human bandwidth issue... every file uploaded to this server will be viewed eventually by someone... its best if files are 'human viewed/human listened' before they are made available.

Thanks for your feedback. Being a non-profit with a very limited staffing, we try to screen new recordings for errors as much as possible, but unfortunately some items still slip through the gaps, and we're trying to fix them as soon as we possibly can. Filing concise, informative error reports will definitely help us with that.

Thanks,
Simon.
